Ying Yai, 15, Karen Hill Tribe

Like many of our kids, Ying Yai is Karen, but Karen from Burma where a bitter war of ethnic cleansing has raged for decades, forcing millions to flee.

Raised in a single parent home, Ying’s mother is an unskilled day laborer and unable to provide an education for her eldest daughter.

Ying has a brilliant smile and she is working very hard on her English.
